Jak Alnwick open to leaving Newcastle United, agent speaks of interest

Jak Alnwick suggests that he could leave Newcastle United in the summer transfer window.

Newcastle United goalkeeper Jak Alnwick has told Goal.com that he is open to leaving the club at the end of the season.

The 21-year-old has been on the books of the Magpies since 2008, but he is not currently part of the first team.

The English youngster joined League One outfit Bradford City last week on loan until the end of the season.

Alnwick made six appearances for Newcastle in the Premier League this season, but it seems that he does not think that he has a future at St. James’ Park.

“I've spoken with Siem de Jong and Tim Krul about a possible transfer," the youngster told Goal.com. "I rate the Eredivisie very highly and they told me that it's a great opportunity for young players to develop myself.”

Alnwick’s agent Narin Eggink said: "We can't say which clubs are interested at this point, but it's concerning clubs that are just under the top of the Eredivisie.”

It now seems likely that Alnwick would depart Newcastle for good in the summer transfer window.

At the age of 21, the Englishman has reached a stage where he needs to play regular football to develop himself.

With Tim Krul as Newcastle’s first-choice goalkeeper, Alnwick will not be able to break into the first team next season, and it does make sense for him to leave in the summer.
